CARLYLE - Carlyle residents Bev and Deb Dunn were the lucky winners of the 50/50 add-on lottery in the Hospitals of Regina Foundation spring draw.

“We were in Regina for an appointment,” said Bev. “The blizzard made driving dangerous and we decided to stay in the city for the night. We were watching the [Toronto Maple] Leafs’ playoff game and received a phone call from my cousin Gary Calcutt. He asked, were you watching the news tonight? I said no, we were watching the hockey game.

“Well, Gary said, you just won the lottery! Deb and I looked at one another. We just couldn’t believe it.”

“We faithfully watch the CTV Regina news but on this night the Leafs took priority. Our phones started to ring and ping, and it ended up being quite the night,” added Deb.

The Dunns are lifetime residents of Carlyle and are ardent supporters of the Hospitals of Regina, Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital and STARS Air Ambulance. They also graciously donate to many local organizations and in fact attended this past weekend’s Carlyle District Lions Club Supper and Auction. 

They love golfing and are strong supporters of the Carlyle Golf Club.

When asked what they plan to do with their winnings, they promptly responded, “We are going to savour the moment and think about it. We really have nothing but time.”
